Sublime landscapes on the island of Houat

4km long, the island of Houat will seduce you as soon as you arrive on the port of Saint-Gildas, a small fishing port with its colourful boats and piled traps.

For the bravest, it is a 4-hour walk around the island. You can also explore Houat by bike.


➔     3 km long and 1.5km wide
➔     288 hectares
➔     17 km of coastal trails

Cross the typical Breton village and eat seafood in one of the island's restaurants.

Then, take the coastal path and walk along breathtaking landscapes in the heart of an exceptional nature.

Finally, relax on the large beach of Trearc'h Er Goured and enjoy its fine sand and turquoise waters.

Visit the Eclosarium museum, which traces the island's history, classified as a Natura 2000 site, and invites you to discover the surrounding marine world.
